Fodor's Review

The home of Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne in the 1870s is filled with delightful Victorian and Edwardian antiques, fabrics, and paintings (as well as several samples of Linley Sambourne's work for Punch) and is one of the most charming extant 19th-century London houses. The Italianate house was the scene for society parties when Anne Messel was in residence in the 1940s. This being Kensington, there's inevitably a royal connection: Messel's son, Antony Armstrong-Jones, was married to the late Princess Margaret, and their son has preserved the connection by taking the title Viscount Linley. Admission in the morning is by reservation on a 75-minute guided tour only (Saturday morning tours are given by costumed actors), but in the afternoon you are free to wander at will.
